“Who’s with me?” read the tailed of a caption I scrolled through on my Instagram feed. “I’m in!” I recognized that comment. “I guess I’m in too.” It was a passive thought, yet somehow I uttered the words to no one. Here’s the post for context. I looked at the time. It was 9:59 exact and the 36 hour cleanse was set to begin at midnight and last all through Tuesday noon o’clock. “I’ve got time,” I thought while, I’ll admit, crushing a bag of Doritos.

It wasn’t long before I started becoming aware of what I was and wasn’t putting into my body. My water intake also increased and...
